Beach-based Learning Outdoors

Beach Academy Wales offers any group (playgroups / uniformed groups / playschemes / youthgroups etc) the opportunity to get outdoors with the sole aim to connect the children and young people in their group with the coast and blue planet; studying, exploring, experimenting, observing, searching, identifying, conserving, protecting, enjoying and creating.

Tailored to suit age, group size and ability. Lessons can also be linked to badges for uniformed groups.
